Wine information: Ramos Pinto Duas Quintas is Douro red wine blend. The "two quintas" in question are Quinta de Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares. Quinta de Ervamoira is located in the heart of the Douro, in schist soil and at low altitude and the climate is hot and dry which allows the grapes to fully mature. At Quinta dos Bons Ares, which has a granite soil and is at a higher altitude, the grapes mature in fresher, windy conditions which lends them freshness and vivacity. Through careful blending the "Duas Quintas" is a unique, fruity, strong and complex wine. This is a blend of 40% Touriga Franca, 40% Tinta Roriz and 20% Touriga Nacional. Following malolactic fermentation in vats, 20% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels and the rest remains in stainless steel vats. The wine is bottled 18 months later.

Tasting Notes: Ramos Pinto Duas Quintas has an intense and clear colour with red notes. There is a fresh and fruity aroma, with cherry and plum aromas prominent, and hints of liquorice and spices develop as the wine breathes. The palate is smooth and expansive revealing freshness and a velvety mouthfeel. The aromas on the nose follow through on to the palate where flavours of red fruit, mulberry, gum cistus and white pepper can be detected. The finish is pleasant and lasting.

Food & Wine match: Ideal both as an aperitif accompanying starters and with grilled meat dishes, salads, poultry dishes and particularly with dried and salted cod.
